As mentoned previously, most websites do now have a responsive design and developers have the tools to be able to do this. Firefox for Android has a desktop site option that you can turn on in the menu from the home screen - you do not need to open a page first.
If you are looking for background playing, I recomend that you install the Video Background Play Fix add-on available from the Add-ons option in the Firefox for Android menu. I use it myself and it works really well.
Actually I have the same problem, but vice-versa!
On my new Samsung S21 cellphone many (but not all) webpages shows as if "Desktop site=on" radiobutton was selected in the Firefox for Android settings, even if it isn't. This happens for e.g. "di.se" and "expressen.se" websites. But on my old Samsung S10e cellphone these webpages still works fine (I have the latest Firefox version 94.1.2 installed on both cellphones).
I tried to remove and reinstall Firefox on the S21 cellphone, but that didn't fix the problem. (It works fine with Chrome on both cellphones, so it's not a website issue).
